Duterte trains eyes on scalawag taxi drivers

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/5 Jul) – Mayor Rodrigo Duterte howled against alleged scalawags in the city’s taxi system a day after a cab driver was shot dead just outside the Land Transportation Office in a string of killings following his inaugural speech wherein he vowed to be relentless against criminals.

While doing so, the mayor defended the police who he said are pushed by threats of charges for pursuing rogue drivers.

In angry statements during the turnover of 13 police patrol cars donated by the city government to the Davao City Police Office on Wednesday, Duterte said the city’s taxi force has been penetrated by criminals pretending to be drivers preying on Dabawenyos and their visitors.

He said they are actually criminals who commit violence and extortion. Read the rest of the report on MindaNews.com.
